The
Empire
A king sits upon a throne;  behind stands a figure veiled in black
It signifies that which will suffer misfortune at the height of greed and whose fall will be dangerous in proportion to the height attained.   Apt to depend on false powers, attempts will be made to essay feats beyond nature.   Ambition will lead into dangerous positions, and at a weak moment all will fall.   Let this be taken as equally affecting physical, moral, and social welfare.
Translation of La Volasfera, Taurus 23

Iraqis Ignore U.S. Vote Amid Bloodshed
BAGHDAD - Iraqis traumatized by violence barely heeded the U.S. election on Wednesday as a suicide bomber attacked a U.S. checkpoint near Baghdad airport and U.S. aircraft carried out a heavy bombardment of rebel-held Falluja.
After President Bush clinched victory over Democratic challenger John Kerry, one Iraqi in a Baghdad restaurant said it was time Washington altered course in Iraq.
"We hope the American president will change his policy toward Iraq ... because Iraq is oppressed and can't remain occupied," Salem Shummari told Reuters Television.
During vote-counting earlier, many Iraqis kept their television sets tuned to Ramadan religious programs.
Bush's deadliest Islamist enemy Osama bin Laden said the U.S. president had dragged America into a quagmire in Iraq and warned for the first time of retaliation for Iraqi deaths.
"Bush's hands are sullied with the blood of those on both sides just for oil and to employ his private companies," the al Qaeda leader said in a full Internet broadcast of a video aired in part by Arabic Al Jazeera television last week.
"Remember that for every action, there is a reaction."
The Vote for 'The War on Terror'

The Vote for "The War on Terror"
Iraq resistance
against US occupation forces
Hungary and the Netherlands said they would withdraw their troops from a U.S.-led multinational force in Iraq by March. Bulgaria said it will cut its military presence by 10 percent.
U.S. Marines watched election coverage at their base near Falluja, west of Baghdad.
Attacks and kidnappings have intensified as Marines step up pressure on Falluja and Ramadi before an expected offensive to retake rebel cities to enable elections to go ahead in January.
Airport Road Iraq Resistance
U.S. warplanes struck Falluja during the day, sending plumes of black smoke rising from the east of the city and wounding two women, according to hospital officials.
After dark, U.S. AC-130 aircraft and tanks hit eastern areas of the city, inflicting the heaviest bombardment residents had felt for several weeks, though U.S. ground troops remained outside the city.
A roadside bomb killed a U.S. soldier and wounded another at Salman Pak, just south of Baghdad, the military said.
A suspected suicide bomber blew up his vehicle on the main road to Baghdad airport, killing an Iraqi security man and wounding seven civilians, witnesses and hospital staff said.
Reuters photographs showed soldiers loading a corpse in a black bag into a military ambulance. A U.S. spokesman at the airport later said it was the body of an Iraqi security man.
An Interior Ministry spokesman said river patrol police had found three unidentified bodies under a bridge across the Tigris on Tuesday. He said they were mutilated but could not confirm an earlier report that they had been decapitated.
Al Jazeera said militants had beheaded three Iraqi National Guards that a previously unknown group accused of spying for U.S. troops in Iraq and helping arrest insurgents.
A U.S. embassy spokesman said he had no word on the three bodies, or on a U.S.-Lebanese contractor named Radim Sadiq, seized in Baghdad's western suburb Mansour on Tuesday.
He also had no information on an U.S. national abducted along with Filipino accountant Roberto Tarongoy, 31, and a Nepali from their Saudi company's office in Mansour on Monday.
Another militant group, the Army of Ansar al-Sunna, said it beheaded Iraqi Major Hussein Shunun, in the northern city of Mosul and accused him of helping U.S. forces against insurgents.
The Care International charity that employs British-Iraqi captive Margaret Hassan said it was distressed by the latest video issued by her kidnappers and urged them to free her.
The tape showed Hassan -- seized in Baghdad on Oct. 19 -- fainting on camera and having water thrown at her to revive her, a witness who saw the tape told Reuters.
Hassan's captors threatened in the tape on Tuesday to give her to a group led by al Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi within 48 hours unless British troops quit Iraq, Al Jazeera said.
Zarqawi's group has claimed responsibility for hostage beheadings and some of Iraq's bloodiest suicide attacks.
Gunmen killed an Oil Ministry official, Hussein Ali, as he left his home in Baghdad, the Interior Ministry spokesman said.
No Iraqi oil was flowing from a northern pipeline to Turkey after this week's sabotage attacks, shipping sources said. (Additional reporting by Waleed Ibrahim, Lin Noueihed and Terry Friel in Baghdad, Michael Georgy near Falluja, and Dubai, Beirut and Amman bureaux)

John Pilger on 'The Empire'
Undeterred by the accelerating disaster in Iraq, Republicans and Democrats, wrote one commentator, "once again joined hands to assert the responsibilities of American power."
The joining of hands across America’s illusory political divide has a long history.
The native Americans were slaughtered, the Philippines laid to waste and Cuba and much of Latin America brought to heel with "bipartisan" backing.
Wading through the blood, a new breed of popular historian, the journalist in the pay of rich newspaper owners, spun the heroic myths of a super-sect called Americanism, which advertising and public relations in the 20th century formalized as an ideology, embracing both conservatism and liberalism.
In the modern era, most of America’s wars have been launched by liberal Democratic presidents--Truman in Korea, Kennedy and Johnson in Vietnam, Carter in Afghanistan.
The fictitious "missile gap" with the former USSR was invented by Kennedy’s liberal New Frontiersmen as a rationale for keeping the Cold War going.
          
Evangelist warns Bush over Jerusalem
Monday 04 October 2004

Jerusalem is not internationally recognised as Israel's capital
American television evangelist Pat Robertson has warned President George Bush that he will risk losing Christian support if he stops backing Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.
On a visit to Jerusalem, Robertson spoke repeatedly in favour of Israel and lambasted Arab countries, warning that the establishment of a Palestinian state would threaten Israel's survival and interfere with "God's plan".
Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed the section of the city as part of its capital. Palestinians want east Jerusalem for the capital of a future state. The city is revered by Muslims, Jews and Christians.
Most nations, including the United States, never recognised Israel's annexation of east Jerusalem and keep their embassies in Tel Aviv.
Overwhelming support
According to Robertson, evangelical Christians - estimated at tens of millions of Americans - overwhelmingly support Bush for his pro-Israel policies,
"But if he touches Jerusalem and he really gets serious about taking east Jerusalem and making it the capital of a Palestinian state, he'll lose virtually all evangelical support," Robertson said on Monday. "I think this is the key issue."
Bush had promised in his election campaign in 2000 to move the US embassy to Jerusalem as a sign of US backing for Israel's hold on the city.
But he later thwarted congressional action to move the embassy, reflecting official US policy that the fate of the city should be negotiated by Israel and the Palestinians.
Bush promised in 2000 to move
the US embassy to Jerusalem
God's plan
Robertson said Israel should not have to give up land for a Palestinian state but Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt should take in the 3.5 million Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Robertson accused Islam of wanting to destroy Israel.
"I see the rise of Islam to destroy Israel and take the land from the Jews and give East Jerusalem to the Palestinian Authority. I see that a Satan's plan to prevent the return of Jesus Christ, the Lord," said the broadcaster.
The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network said he favoured Israel over the Palestinians, saying: "It isn't a question of politics, it's just a question of God's plan."
He added that Jews and Christians have a common heritage and a different God from the Muslims.
The Virginia-based television evangelist is visiting Israel as a guest of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem.
More than 4000 evangelical Christian pilgrims are touring Israel during Sukkot, the Feast of the Tabernacles, a Jewish holiday some Christians also celebrate.
"But if he [Bush] touches Jerusalem and he really gets serious about taking east Jerusalem and making it the capital of a Palestinian state, he'll lose virtually all evangelical support"
Pat Robertson,
American television evangelist
Dispensationalism
Some evangelical Christians in the US follow the doctrine of dispensationalism, which, among other things, stipulates that the creation of Israel in Palestine in 1948 was a fulfilment of Biblical prophecy and presages the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Some evangelist leaders have supported Israel's atrocities against the Palestinians, such as the 1982 Sabra and Shatila refugee camp slaughter as well as the Jenin refugee camp massacre in 2002 on the grounds that such events ushered in the second coming of Jesus.
There are also evangelical doctrines teaching that a universal apocalyptic war between good and evil, called Armageddon, will take place in Palestine in which most Jews will be annihilated except some 40,000 who would accept Jesus and become Christians.
The evangelicals are considered some of Israel's strongest supporters in the West, especially in the US where they hold a swaying influence on the Republican party and could help to determine the outcome of the current presidential election campaign.

Rania Iyad Aram
8 year old girl killed in Gaza, Palestine
Paid for by The Empire
Palestinian hospital workers prepare the body of Rania Iyad Aram for burial at Nasser hospital at Khan Younis refugee camp, southern Gaza Strip, Thursday, Oct. 28 2004. 

Israeli troops shot and killed the 8-year-old girl who was on her way to school in a Gaza Strip refugee camp.

Limbless children, babies blasted into pieces, the wounded dying on hospital floors.
 
'We are wading in death, blood and amputees,' says Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert.

Frantic families across Gaza sought any shelter they could find as the US Israel army attacked.

The US paid US Israel army fires towards populations to cause death and injury.

The US Israel tank, troop and air strike assault on a defenseless people in the Gaza Strip has unleashed worldwide condemnation as moves for a ceasefire was vetoed by the US at the United Nations.

US and Israel attacked indiscriminately Palestine high density population areas of Gaza from the air, sea and ground, often using white phosphorus, the use is a specific war crime.

More than Fifteen million US dollars is given by US taxpayers each day for the military use of Israel, which presently involves the imprisonment of the remaining segregated ' Bantustan — Apartheid ' parcels of land occupied by millions of Palestinian.

Palestinians were forced from their homes 60 years ago from what is now called Israel into refugee camps in Gaza and the West Bank, Jordan and Lebanon.

While attempts have been made by the Palestinians to create a better life for themselves, these refugee camps have been forced upon them to this day by American Taxpayer funding, and Anglo American, Europe backing and banking for Israel that has propped up the forced 'state' of Israel for more than fifty years.

Illuminati, New World Order elite have been at the forefront in protecting European and American settler people who stole the land and continue to steal the remaining few segments of land from the Palestinians, in essence taking away from the Palestinians piece by piece this land over these many years.

Funding by the US Taxpayer for the enslavement of the Palestinian people continues to increase, estimated now considerably more than the previous 4 billion US dollars per year.

John Pilger on 'The Empire'
THESE DAYS, terrorism having replaced the red menace, another fake debate is under way.
This is lesser evilism.
Although few liberal-minded voters seem to have illusions about John Kerry, their need to get rid of the "rogue" Bush administration is all-consuming.
Representing them in Britain, the Guardian says the coming presidential election is "exceptional."
"Mr. Kerry’s flaws and limitations are evident," says the paper, "but they are put in the shade by the neo-conservative agenda and catastrophic war-making of Mr. Bush.
This is an election in which the whole world will breathe a sigh of relief if the incumbent is defeated."
The whole world may well breathe a sigh of relief; the Bush regime is both dangerous and universally loathed; but that is not the point.
We have debated lesser evilism so often on both sides of the Atlantic that it is surely time to stop gesturing at the obvious and to examine critically a system that produces the Bushes and their Democratic shadows.
For those of us who marvel at our luck in reaching mature years without having been blown to bits by the warlords of Americanism, Republican and Democrat, conservative and liberal, and for the millions all over the world who now reject the American contagion in political life, the true issue is clear...
Time to stop this nonsense
Every modern president has been, in large part, a media creation.
Thus, the murderous Reagan is sanctified still; Murdoch’s Fox News Channel and the post-Hutton BBC have differed only in their forms of adulation.
And Clinton is regarded nostalgically by liberals as flawed but enlightened.
Yet Clinton’s presidential years were far more violent than Bush’s, and his goals were the same: "The integration of countries into the global free market community," the terms of which, noted the New York Times, "require the United States to be involved in the plumbing and wiring of nations’ internal affairs more deeply than ever before."
The Pentagon’s "full-spectrum dominance" was not the product of the "neo-cons" but of the liberal Clinton, who approved what was then the greatest war expenditure in history.
According to the Guardian, John Kerry sends us "energizing progressive calls." It is time to stop this nonsense.
SUPREMACY IS the essence of Americanism; only the veil changes or slips.
In 1976, the Democrat Jimmy Carter announced "a foreign policy that respects human rights."
In secret, he backed Indonesia’s genocide in East Timor and established the mujahedeen in Afghanistan as a terrorist organization designed to overthrow the Soviet Union, and from which came the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
It was the liberal Carter, not Reagan, who laid the ground for Bush.

In the past year, I have interviewed Carter’s principal foreign policy overlords, Zbigniew Brezinski, his national security advisor, and James Schlesinger, his defense secretary.
No blueprint for the new imperialism is more respected than Brezinski’s.
Invested with biblical authority by the Bush gang, his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geo-strategic Imperatives, describes American priorities as the economic subjugation of the Soviet Union and the control of Central Asia and the Middle East.
His analysis says that "local wars" are merely the beginning of a final conflict leading inexorably to world domination by the U.S.
"To put it in a terminology that harkens back to a more brutal age of ancient empires," he writes, "the three grand imperatives of imperial geo-strategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected and to keep the barbarians from coming together."
It may have been easy once to dismiss this as a message from the lunar right.
But Brzezinski is mainstream.
His devoted students include Madeleine Albright, Clinton’s secretary of state...
...and John Negroponte, the mastermind of American terror in Central America under Reagan and currently "ambassador" in Baghdad.
James Rubin, who was Albright’s enthusiastic apologist at the State Department, is being considered as John Kerry’s national security adviser.
He is also a Zionist; Israel and its role as a terror state is beyond discussion.
Cast an eye over the rest of the world. As Iraq has crowded the front pages, American moves into Africa have attracted little attention.
Here, the Clinton and Bush policies are seamless.
In the 1990s, Clinton’s African Growth and Opportunity Act launched a new scramble for Africa.

Humanitarian bombers wonder why Bush and Blair have not attacked Sudan and "liberated" Darfur, or intervened in Zimbabwe or the Congo.
The answer is that they have no interest in human distress and human rights and are busy securing the same riches that led to the European scramble in the late 19th century by traditional means of coercion and bribery known as multilateralism.
The Congo and Zambia possess 50 percent of world cobalt reserves; 98 percent of the world’s chrome reserves are in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
More importantly, there is oil and natural gas in west Africa, from Nigeria to Angola, and in the Higleig Basin in Sudan.
Under Clinton, the African Crisis Response Initiative (ACRI) was set up in secret.
This has allowed the U.S. to establish "military assistance programs" in Senegal, Uganda, Malawi, Ghana, Benin, Algeria, Niger, Mali and Chad.
ACRI is run by Col. Nestor Pino-Marina, a Cuban exile who took part in the 1961 Bay of Pigs landing and went on to be a Special Forces officer in Vietnam and Laos--and, under Reagan, helped lead the contra invasion of Nicaragua.
The pedigrees never change.

Illuminati, New World Order elite have been at the forefront in protecting European and American settler people who stole the land and continue to steal the remaining few segments of land from the Palestinians, in essence taking away from the Palestinians piece by piece this land over these many years.
Funding by the US Taxpayer for the enslavement of the Palestinian people continues to increase, estimated now considerably more than the previous 4 billion US dollars per year.

John Pilger on 'The Empire'
Danger the American state presents to the world
NONE OF this is discussed in a presidential campaign in which John Kerry strains to out-Bush Bush.
The multilateralism or "muscular internationalism" that Kerry offers in contrast to Bush’s unilateralism is seen as hopeful by the terminally naive; in truth, it beckons even greater dangers.
Bush, having given the American elite its greatest disaster since Vietnam, writes the historian Gabriel Kolko, "is much more likely to continue the destruction of the alliance system that is so crucial to American power.
One does not have to believe the worse the better, but we have to consider candidly the foreign policy consequences of a renewal of Bush’s mandate.
As dangerous as it is, Bush’s re-election may be a lesser evil."
With NATO back in train under President Kerry, and the French and Germans compliant, American ambitions will proceed without the Napoleonic hindrances of the Bush gang.
Little of this appears even in the American papers worth reading.
The Washington Post’s hand-wringing apology to its readers on August 14 for not "pay[ing] enough attention to voices raising questions about the war [against Iraq]" has not interrupted its silence on the danger that the American state presents to the world.
Bush’s rating has risen in the polls to more than 50 percent, a level at this stage in the campaign at which no incumbent has ever lost.
The virtues of his "plain speaking," which the entire media machine promoted four years ago, Fox and the Washington Post alike, are again credited.
As in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, Americans are denied a modicum of understanding of what Norman Mailer has called "a pre-fascist climate."
The fears of the rest of us are of no consequence.
The professional liberals on both sides of the Atlantic have played a major part in this.
Never nationalists defending their homeland
The campaign against Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 is indicative.
The film is not radical and makes no outlandish claims; what it does is push past those guarding the boundaries of "respectable" dissent.
That is why the public applaud it.
It breaks the collusive codes of journalism, which it shames.
It allows people to begin to deconstruct the nightly propaganda that passes for news: in which "a sovereign Iraqi government pursues democracy" and those fighting in Najaf and Falluja and Basra are always "militants" and "insurgents" or members of a "private army," never nationalists defending their homeland, and whose resistance has probably forestalled attacks on Iran, Syria or North Korea.
The real debate is neither Bush nor Kerry, but the system they exemplify; it is the decline of true democracy and the rise of the American "national security state" in Britain and other countries claiming to be democracies, in which people are sent to prison and the key thrown away, and whose leaders commit capital crimes in faraway places, unhindered — then, like the ruthless Tony Blair, invite the thug they install to address the British Labour Party conference.
The real debate is the subjugation of national economies to a system dividing humanity as never before and sustaining the deaths, every day, of 24,000 hungry people.
The real debate is the subversion of political language and of debate itself, and perhaps, in the end, our self-respect.

Psychologist Pete Linnerooth was one of three who were part of a mental health crew in charge of the US 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division in the Baghdad area of Iraq.   Pete Linnerooth committed suicide by turning a gun upon himself in January of 2013
Veterans kill themselves at a rate of one every 80 minutes.   More than 6,500 veteran suicides are logged every year — more than the total number of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined since those wars began.
Mary Coghill Kirkland said she asked her son, 21-year-old Army Spc. Derrick Kirkland, what was wrong as soon as he came back from his first deployment to Iraq in 2008.   He had a ready answer: "Mom, I'm a murderer."

(IsraelNN.com July 15, 2004) The Foreign Ministry will take steps towards restoring relations with New Zealand. New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark today announced she was implementing diplomatic sanctions after two Israelis were sentenced on charges of attempting to obtain illegal passports. Despite Israeli refusal to respond to the accusations, the two are labeled in the New Zealand media as Mossad agents acting on behalf of the Israeli intelligence community.

Foreign Ministry officials stated they will do everything possible to renew diplomatic ties, expressing sorrow over the "unfortunate incident".
